There's some kind of shit going on around the blogosphere about "compassion".
It even has its own hashtag (like Preznit Stompy Feet's foreign policy) - #1000Speak.
I have no damned idea what this deal is about, except is about "compassion".
I suppose this #1000Speak Shindig is about being non-judgemental.
I disagree with being non-judgemental. I judge shit and people every damn day. If I judge you to be an asshole, I won't waste my time being around you or talking to your sorry ass again. That, in my opinion, is exercising good judgement. That is what Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called judging by "the content of one's character".
Extrapolating a bit further, if you are a Sweaty Swamp Donkey Asshole, fuck you!
Simple ain't it?
Now I realize that this #1000Speak Thing is probably more nuanced than the tack I have taken here and that's all well and good, but when it gets down to the nut-cuttin', being a little bit judgemental is perfctly fine.
Except when it comes to yard birds.
Never judge the yard bird! EVER!
